Proud moments....

Its been on the Go! Go! Go! for me lately - I havnt had a chance to visit you all much, I miss the downtime, my quiet internet time but there's just too much to do before Christmas Day!
im sure its the same for you?!

My little Neo had his Christmas concert so I was at the Preschool all morning - so cute! adorable kids!
then i stopped at the Nut Roaster to get some goods (well worth a trip if you live in Sydney!! - everything is SO fresh) the queue was out the door, i knew it would be busy but not crazy busy!!
Ive now got some fruit simmering as I plan to make my boiled fruit Christmas cake this afternoon - the kitchen smells like caramel! Delicious!

When Andrew and I got married 9 years ago, his youngest nieces were our flower girls.
This year they both finished High School and this week they both got great marks in their HSC exams so it looks like its University for both of them next year!!
Big Congratulations Christina and Andrea, well done and the best of luck for a bright future!! exciting times ahead!
also my niece Stephanie got voted in as a Prefect as she enters 6th class next year - Im such a proud auntie!! clever girls!!

as for the top Image - just a little bit of Tim Walker to make you smile!
